Members of the Prairie View FFA Booster Club, their families and friends got an inside look at the new agriculture wing during an open house on Saturday evening, May 7. With much of the shop items such as welding equipment and cutoff saws moved into the new facility, it will end the school year on a high note.
Many of the district’s farming families attended and were served dinner. They also had an opportunity to participate in a silent auction on baskets and other items to raise money for the program.
Agriculture teachers Trenton Smedley and Melisa Bertz were on hand to talk with parents and answer questions about the new wing, which includes a spacious shop and new classrooms.
Smedley said once everything is moved in, it will be a state-of-the-art-shop. That includes a row of welding booths along the north wall of the shop, and each of the booths has its own ventilation system.
